4-inch iPhone 5 display photographs leaked

New photographs of an alleged iPhone 5 display have surfaced ahead of September launch

Photographs of an alleged iPhone 5 display have surfaced, showing the speculated taller, 4-inch screen that Apple is expected to introduce with the new device.

MacRumors first spotted the components on repair website UBreakiFix, which claims to have received the photographs of the front panel of the next-generation iPhone from a distributor.

The photographs show a white front panel with the taller, 4in display (up from the 3.5in screen size employed by Apple since the first iPhone in 2007) that many have predicted for the iPhone 5, as well as a central camera hole.

The 4-inch screen would allow an extra row of icons to be displayed on the home screen of the iPhone. The bigger screen is expected to allow a 16-by-9 aspect ratio.

It is widely believed that Apple is planning to launch the new iPhone at a 12 September special event, which could also see the unveiling of an iPad mini.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
